So, our house burned down last night (probably caused by the cruise control thingy Ford just recalled... they told us to bring it in "at our earliest convenience") While it sucks, everyone made it out ok (even the dog and the turtles). I'm glad my family has a sense of humor though, or the situation would have been a lot more stressful.

Mom: At least I don't have to clean out my closets now.


Brother 2: We should buy something awesome with the insurance money.

Me: Like what?

Brother 2: How about a cannon?


Brother 1: Haha! You're homeless!

Brother 2: So are you.

Brother 1: Shit. That's right.

My house really did burn down last Tuesday after only purchasing it four months ago. I never got a chance to get insurance. We were still fixing it but, had finally hung the last cabinet door monday night. I barely made it out of the house but we did. Luckily my 6&7 year old was still at school . I haven't even taken them to see it. Ne way if you know of any kind of place that will help with furniture and stuff please Email me at Thank you!
